  • "Thankyou for sharing your cosy little cottage with us."

    Fabulous accommodation with everything we could possibly need. Thankyou also for the lovely welcome goodies, much appreciated. So much to see and do around here without travelling more than 30 minutes. Highlights for us included Rothbury and the Simonside Hills, a visit to Bamburgh and the Castle, a walk from Ingram up to Linhope Spout (nice cafe in Ingram too), Alnwick and Chillingham Castles, and Holy Island. Would definitely return!

    We absolutely loved our stay, not far from Cheddar but very much in the countryside. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet, and the little walks in the owners meadow, it was perfect and we’d love to come back.

  • "This is a lovely cottage as a base for exploring Northumberland, with some nice walks straight from the door."

    I highly recommend it to any single person or couple who would like to explore Northumberland. This was my first visit in winter and I did worry about how warm it would be, but I needn't have, it was nice and cozy inside, despite sub zero temperatures outside. The Branton lakes were frozen over, which looked beautiful, only a few hundred yards from the house.
